functioning of the british state in india, and, of course, you are trying to interrupt dop functioning of the information's circulation and so on. i repeat an endless paraphrase of the wonderful line from "and beggar's opera." what is robbing the bank in comparison to opening a new bank? what is terrorism the week except so that things go on day by day to remain in the way they are. that is ideological. we always think about? switch interrupt the normal run of things. -- we always think about cac ts that always interrupt the normal run of things. we should use the term terrorism as strictly a reaction to a much stronger terrorism. again, instead of engaging in this moralistic things like he is a good guy, likes dahlin said about 11, you like small children, you play with tests, you are, in this formal sense, a terrorist, but if you are a terrorist, my god, what are they, who accuse you of terrorism?

neighbors such as india and iran and china and afghanistan. s importance cannot be diminished. the good news is that we are working on our democracy. we have sustained it for three years. hopefully, we will be able to sustain it for a long-term future. we are in the process of normalizing relations with the two neighbors we have had trouble having relations with, afghanistan and india. the tough thing is that we are also thinking of looking at things differently, at instead of sitting at the crossroad of these complex, and we want to see ourselves with the opportunities that this presents. transition is not easy. it will be difficult. it will take time. but we have the clarity of our vision and the intent is there to do it. i will leave all the tough questions for karen to ask and for me to answer during the dialogue. thank you for being here.

centers move to india, manufacturing plants move to mexico. there is one simple question. are we going to face the reality of the marketplace today? if you are 55 years old, it is hard to find a job. we are not creating them fast enough. the idea that we are going to do this and ignore the weight we have created the fabric of consensus around trade is astonishing to me. i hope we will recognize that those workers are not making this decision. we are making a policy. as a result of that policy, we know some people will be thrown out of work. we should do something, minuscule, compared to the overall budget and compared to out with the opposite, to help those workers transition into some kind of new jobs. that is what is at stake here. i hope we are going to honor ronald reagan's, george bush's by partisanship that existed on this topic. if it can pass on its own, why make this big issue of passing it as part of this? pass it. thank you, mr. chairman. >> next is senator pat roberts roberts.or >> i am not posturing. i want to congratulate the chairman. no one could have work any har
